Re: Is there a "yum re-install"?

You can do "rpm -e --nodeps package" and the do "yum install package"

General objection: unless the package is one that's necessary to run RPM
or yum. If it is, then obviously the second command won't work, and your
system is in Trouble. (If RPM won't work, it's in Big Trouble...)

Rpm works fine!
The package stays installed, yum or rpm no longer knows the package exists. Then when you run yum install package, the files are overwritten, except for config files where the install scripts look for previous file versions. These type files will be either saved as filename.rpmnew or whatever the install scripts are setup to name the files to.
